REACH Community Health Centre is led by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by our membership each year at our Annual General Meeting. Their role is to govern the organization in a timely, transparent, and accountable manner by overseeing the performance of the organization and ensuring fiscal integrity and regulatory compliance.
Our directors live or work in Vancouver or are clients of REACH programs. They serve two year terms up to a maximum of four terms. A director should be committed to and knowledgeable about REACH, have the time available to attend regular meetings, and have the appropriate skill set to provide leadership and governance direction to the organization. Board members are expected to support and sign our board job description, statement of confidentiality and conflict of interest policy. Each year a nominating committee is struck to recruit new members based on board needs and our strategic plan.
The administration team works behind the scenes to ensure REACH continues as a mainstay in the Commercial Drive community.
Each department contributes to REACH in different ways, but together, we address the social determinants of health and ensure everyone has access to health care, whatever their needs.
